Health & Healing: Spoken Portraits of Black Women

About this Event

Hosted by Autograph this evening will explore what health, healing and liberation practices look like for Black women and non-binary people in the context of late capitalism. This event centres the lived experiences of Black women and non-binary people. Participants will be  invited to connect, share experiences, witness, re-source as a collective, and reflect on our daily health, healing and liberation practices.

Writer, community organiser and bodyworker Omikemi will perform an excerpt from their collection of spoken word portraits, generated through playful and candid conversations with other Black women over the past year – considering themes of health, healing, vulnerability, pleasure, and internalized racism within the Black community. The sharing will be followed by an inquiry circle facilitated by writer and psychotherapist Foluke Taylor, who will invite participants to take part in a deeper listening and dialoguing exercise.
